They are looking for a Director of Engineering with a background in betting/gambling to join their team on a permanent basis. You can either be based out of their offices in London or Dubai or initially remotely with the view of relocating to either city in the near future.

They have experienced huge growth in the last few years and are looking for someone to ensure that everything is designed not just for now, but for the growth of years to come, aligned with roadmaps and long-term company strategy, along with making sure you deliver great solutions that are proven to meet the needs of their users.

- Extensive experience working with highly accessible, distributed, low-latency systems, with hands-on experience of microservices and design patterns for event-driven architectural design

Along with this, my client offers a competitive salary (tax-free in Dubai), a relocation package, ESOP, bonus, and much more!
